I don't think the coil is being defrosted. That first picture you posted of the coil viewed through the slots in the back cover is completely blocked with frost. No air could get through there. The second picture after 42 hours is starting to get heavy frost build up also. Give it another 48 hours and it will look like the first one.

Replaced thermostat.

48 hours later still going very well. Just a dusting of frost.

Thanks for all your help.

My understanding of electricity has improved greatly.
